Braxton Miller threw out the first pitch for the Reds in a truly majestic cowboy hat

As a native of nearby Springfield, Ohio, former Ohio State star and soon-to-be NFL draft pick Braxton Miller was thrilled to have the opportunity to throw out the first pitch at Monday's Rockies-Reds game. But something wasn't quite right. Something was missing. The top of his head felt strangely ... empty.

That wasn't Miller's only excellent fashion choice of the day, though -- earlier, he was spotted wearing a throwback Reds uniform that just happened to be signed by Pete Rose. When you know you'll be throwing to resident swag correspondent Brandon Phillips, you need to come correct.
